Brotherhood leader: Secular journalists feed sectarian strife

“There are certain secular journalists with personal agendas that incite against religion and feed sectarian strife,” said Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie. “I tell them, heed God’s wrath.”

“They said the Imbaba violence represented sectarian strife between Muslims and Christians,” he added. “Then evidence pointed at the remnants of the former regime and the dissolved State Security Investigation Services being behind it.”

Speaking to more than 30,000 people who attended the inauguration of the group’s branch in Daqahlia, Badie also said that his group welcomes all political forces, irrespective of any attacks against it.

“We invited all political forces to run in the parliamentary elections under one united coalition,” he said. “But certain political parties opted to run against us.”

“Islamic Sharia is our frame of reference,” he said. “Even Pope Shenouda resorted to it in the controversial issue of the second marriage for divorced Christians.”
